Hi Fellas
There are a few threads out there on the internet regarding Vikings that crank and don’t start due to fuel pump not coming on, or Vikings that are running then suddenly stop and will crank with full gauges but no fuel pump sound. I have thrown my 2cents at a couple to try and help. Fuses, starter solenoid relays, fuel pump, switches, subs, batteries, spark plugs etc etc. I have been having issues with this type of stuff on and off for a while now, because I plow water like a mad mofo submarine commander I thought maybe it is operator related. This is what I have just found, after I replaced the fuel pump and it still worked intermittently, hopefully it helps someone else in the Viking world.

Blue and yellow wire loose inside of connector. Pull the blue wire forward Viking fuel pump primes and starts, push the blue and yellow wire back - Viking dies in the ass and fuel pump will not run.
From the factory this plug has always been a tight fit with no extra wire and the wires that come out of the plug bend with a 90degree Cheers

That's a good find and good help. I had a 12 month old V8 Commodore that would die at the lights sitting idling, no fuel pump, had to get pushed off the road numerous times, eventually found the exact same thing as you, when they pushed the Deustch plug together at the factory one of the wires got half pushed back out of the plug, intermittent connection.
